8:03am
the state, forcing them to wear masks. fierce that lightning storms today could add more fuel to the fires. ginger zee is tracking it all. >> 23 large fires in six western states. happening right now, and you can see all of the fires plotted here. it's been one of the driest august and september on record. from the ground, the flames rise in washington state. leaving acres of scorched wilderness in their wake. from a distance, you can see just how huge these fires have become. the plumes of dangerous choking smoke rising up over the mountaintops. these fires have been burning for 13 days. 3,000 firefighters now working around the clock to contain them. and hundreds of residents have been driven from their homes, which now stand in destruction's path. >> you combine all of these conditions together, and yeah, i can see a perfect storm here. >> reporter: but the real danger
8:04am
lies in the smoke, smothering nearby towns. rendering air quality so bad that people must now wear masks when they go outside. while unhealthy air can measure as low as 35 on the air quality index, officials say the air quality here is spiking over 900. >> i have asthma. my wife has breathing issues. it gets pretty bad some times. >> reporter: and as firefighters try to put out the 22 separate fires still burning uncontrollably, the fear that the largest two, just one mile apart, may soon merge into one giant, dangerous blaze. >> and again, it's not just the state of washington. look at idaho. you can see that highlighted there. that's why they're having all of those air quality issues. they'll continue to do so until they get into the rainy season. so the fire weather not good, some dry lightning still possible. temperatures aren't too terrible. but red-flag warnings still in effect.
8:05am
i'll have much more coming up on, again, what will likely be the biggest wildfire season this nation has ever seen, almost 8 million acres burned so far. back to you all. syrian rebels taking a big step forward in their effort to overthrow president bashir al assad. they're moving their command center from turkey to syria to you unite all rebel groups. in the past few months, the rebels have captured large chunks of land along the border with turkey. if you're eating peanut butter from trader joe's with your breakfast, you should check your label. it's recalling its creamy salted peanut butter. the store has removed the peanut butter from its shelves. anyone hoping to pick up the new iphone today, will have to wait. stores do expect to restock the iphone tomorrow.

8:08am
with an incumbent president of the united states. >> reporter: that's what romney says. while he seizes on the president's line that he can't change washington from the inside, the romney campaign is changing. with aides promising an intense battleground schedule. colorado tonight. bus tour in ohio. campaigning in virginia. romney doesn't lead in any battleground states. but the campaign is making inroads in wisconsin. not surprisingly the president hoping to block any momentum made a saturday visit. picking up a milwaukee, and hitting a couple of fund-raisers. even though he won this state by 14 points, the president admits this year is harder in wisconsin. where the president went after romney's comments that 47% of americans are victims. >> i don't believe in just looking out for workers or businesses, or rich or poor, or 53% or 47%, i'm going to look out for everybody. that's why i'm running for a second term.
8:09am
that's why i need your vote. >> that's what the president wants to talk about when he's out on the campaign trial. romney's 47% comment. by the way, that was the president's first visit to wisconsin in 220 days, showing just how team obama is hoping to blunt any momentum romney may gain in some of those battleground states. dan? >> david kerley, thank you. for more on all of this, let's bring in the hardest working man in news, his name is george stephanopoulos. he's the host of "this week" with george stephanopoulos. how is that for an intro? >> i like it. >> his advisers are saying it needs a reset. >> number one, he just -- he has to have do no harm strategy. he can't have another week defined by a gaffe. knowing that the president is going to pounce on anything that might resemble a pounce.
8:10am
saturate the battleground states with mitt romney. right now, he's behind or barely tied in any single battleground. he's not ahead. in any one of them right now. and number three, he's got to focus, again, hard, on the economy, one of the things that's helping president obama right now is more and more americans think the country is going in the right direction and he's pulled to even with romney on the economy. >> there's another big turning point in ten days, the debate, people say this is a real potential opportunity for romney. if you're in the room prepping him, what are you telling him to do that night? >> picking up on what i just said, every single answer that mitt romney gives in that first debate, the last big audience of the campaign, has to be about the economy, has to be focused on president obama as the candidate of status quo, the way things are. and he has to offer specific solutions to the problems that he addressed.
8:11am
>> it's really only the first debate is the one with the big audience? >> in part, because voting has already begun in some states. by the third debate in late october, likely more than a third of the country will have already voted. >> george, thank you very much for coming on. george has a big show this morning. his guests include david axelrod and reince priebus. george, thanks once again. bianna, over to you. the story about the guy who jumped into the tiger enclosure at the bronx zoo. is only getting weirder. we know now why he did it. because quote, he wanted to be one with the tiger. john muller has the latest. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. it doesn't get much stranger than jumping from a monorail at the zoo into the tiger pen. as you mentioned, the police asked this 25-year-old fighting for his life why he did it? he said, quote, i want to be one with the tiger.
8:12am
just as strange, police have no reason to think that he was intoxicated and they don't think he's mentally ill. 75 feet down right into the tiger pen. no, it was not a suicide attempt. police say that 25-year-old david villalobos did it on purpose. so he could be one with a 400-pound male siberian tiger. a tiger like this one, capable of killing a man in matter of seconds. >> this is new york. we have 8.4 million people here. and, you know, strange things can sometimes happen. >> the new details are startling. he told police that he landed on all fours like a cat. on his facebook page, his obsession. a picture of siberian tiger. like the one that dragged him around the pen, crashing his ankle. >> we know on his facebook that he has a picture of a tiger. he visited the zoo the last month.
8:13am
>> a former classmate confirmed his behavior as of late. >> it just seemed a little strange. >> rorter: it seemed that he sustained most of his serious injuries from the ll. rather than the tiger. breaking his shoulder, pelvis and a rib, also collapsing a lung on impact. villalobos did succeed with becoming one with the tiger. while in his jaws for almost ten minutes. but zoo officials said that he didn't want him dead. >> he was rescued by zoo personnel, who used a fire extinguisher to get the tiger. they instructed him to roll over by an electrified fence. to roll under the fence. >> reporter: he also told police quote, everyone in life makes choices. this choice nearly killed him. villalobos remains in stable condition at the hospital. if he's convicted he could be one with a jail cell. he told police after this initial mauling, he had a chance
8:14am
to pet the tiger and he has vivid memories of this. the tiger by the way, won't be euthanizebd, the tiger did nothing wrong. dan, back to you. >> one with the jail cell, perhaps deservedly so. now to a bombshell revelation that's just days away from hitting bookstores. arnold schwarzenegger out with a tell-all memoir about the moment that his wife, maria shriver confronted him about his secret love child. john schriffen has the details. john, good morning to you. >> it was more than a year ago that the world of politics and entertainment were rocked. after 25 years, shriver was leaving her husband. but the real bombshell wasn't to come until later when the world heard for the first time why. it's his total mea culpa. he's come clean in his new book "total recall."
8:15am
finally opening up about the wrenching moment his wife, maria shriver, confronted him about his love child. it was a couples therapy session when quote, the therapist turned to me and said maria wanted to come here today and ask about a child. whether you fathered a child with the housekeeper mildred. caught off-guard, he said it was true. shriver had questioned him before the love child. but arnold had denied it. she let the issue go. for a while, he refused to believe that the child was his. during that confrontation, he first gave shriver, quote, three lame reasons why he hid the child joseph from her, embarrassment. a compulsion for secrecy. and not wanting her to tell her family, the famed kennedy clan. schwarzenegger writes in the book, after he came clean, he
8:16am
grabled that she was a perfect wife. now, he says of the affair that he was stupid. and the former governor and box office star in true hollywood style is hoping for a happy ending. he's hoping to eventually reunite with shriver. his book hits the bookstores on october the 1st. >> should we take -- should we read into this that he's not running for office again? >> right, exactly. >> thank you, john. back over to ginger zee. it's so cold in parts of the great lakes. and the northern plains. look at the numbers here. des moines this morning, just under 40. bismarck, 26 degrees. ten states at least in frost and freeze warnings and advisories. it will expand to 13 by tomorrow morning. it will all start to trickle east. some of the coldest air in chicago waking up by the way.
